Remix Roundup 77 – [Part 2] – Sacre, Spice Girls, Clairo, Hayden James

Hey all, we decided to keep things going w/ our re-introduction to the “Remix Roundup”. While we don’t have any official expectations or a set schedule, I’m going to see if I can keep these coming for you…. I’ve still got a fair amount of older and newer remixes backlogged, so I’ll try my best to mix them both in. Also, if you guys are interested, I’m starting a Spotify “Best Remixes” playlist you can follow.  Keep in mind that most remixes never make it to Spotify and iTunes :(

[PLAYLIST] The Best REMIXES of 2012 – Part 2 (July-Dec)



Man oh man. Could we be in a better world for fun remixes of great songs? Some of the old guard has been slacking in quality lately (RAC, where you at?) but new talent is cropping up in droves. Cyril Hahn practically made his name from that Destiny’s Child remix. Noah Hyde is on the map with amazing work. Manu el Chino nabs his second spot of 2012. Too many great tracks. Get on it for the weekend and check out all the bands and remixers you may have missed through the years. And especially listen to that Years & Years remix. What a genre flip. Mmmm…..

Be sure to catch all the 2012 “BEST OF” lists!

[REMIX] Alex Clare – “Too Close” (Manu El Chino Remix)

which way is right, which way is wrong, how do I say that I need to move on

♫ Alex Clare – Too Close (Manu El Chino Remix)

If you are ate to the Alex Clare party (like I was) then get up in it because peeps be getting funky. The dude kicks out some jams and there is even a bit of dub sprinkled in for those of you inclined to that sort of behavior. BUT, before you rush off, get limber with this monster remix of Clare’s hit “Too Close.” Manu el Chino has already done big things with Carly rae and now he tackles a much more listenable original, turning it into a dance floor beast worth of that album art.
